Far From Shore - A Mother's Memoir of a Shark Attack

Marge Kathrein just published a new book - Far from Shore - A Mother's Memoir of a Shark Attack.  
It's available now on Amazon.com here.  
Publisher's description:
It was the final day of summer, 1998, when sixteen-year-old surfer Jonathan Kathrein paddled out on his board for one last ride at Stinson Beach, in the area known as the Red Triangle. When the great white shark struck, it so decimated the boy’s hip and leg that his survival was considered miraculous. From this vicious and terrifying attack, and from the lengthy and painful post-surgical rehabilitation that followed, comes Margaret Kathrein’s moving and deeply inspirational memoir, Far From Shore: A Mother’s Memoir of a Shark Attack. This book is more than a narration on survival and courage; it is a reminder of the importance of a close and encouraging family, and how the love and support of family and community can sustain us through unrelenting pain and fear. This is also a memorable insight into how one boy faced the possibility of death and grew to be an extraordinary man.
